1.  Effie - Home Dry Cleaning

Has anyone seen or heard of this dry cleaning method for use at home?  See attached youtube video. Interesting.
I thought this could work for laundromats who don't have the ability to do dry cleaning in their facility could possibly use this unit.

That's interesting but with a lot of unanswered questions.  Like time & space required?  Like durability & ability to keep clean the cabinet?  Setting up with the timer & coin mech &/or bill acceptor seems would be the relatively easy for many of us ... ourselves included.

A professional shirt unit in a dry cleaning plant might cost $10,000 and consist of a body/sleeve press and a collar/cuff press. I wouldn't hold much expectation for that plastic gizmo.

It is not a dry cleaning method but a finishing station, I can't even call it a press.
It may last in a home application where you are finishing a dozen pieces a week but I don't see it holding up under even light commercial work.
There are better options out there if you want to start finishing garments in your laundromat.
